KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 26: Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) and its Group Managing Director (GMD), Datuk Mohamad Salim Fateh Din received awards for two categories of the Global Leadership Award 2014 held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre Friday.
Datuk Mohamad Salim Fateh Din and MRCB came out tops respectively in the “Masterclass CEO of the Year” category and the best “Urban Regeneration Development” category, registering a significant recognition by industry specialists on the achievements of MRCB Group.
“I am simply ecstatic about this double-win for MRCB and myself. This is true recognition of MRCB’s achievements in the property development and construction sector plus my contributions to the sector before and after joining MRCB.
“I will continue to build on MRCB’s strengths and will commit myself and the able workforce of MRCB to deliver various infrastructures that support the national economic development agenda,” said Salim while sharing his thoughts on receiving the two trophies from the Global Leadership Award 2014.
The Global Leadership Award is an awards programme designed to promote excellence, innovation and best practices in business entities and their leadership, and is widely regarded as the epitome of outstanding businesses and personalities in Malaysia.
Salim is one of the first property developers to embark on green development certifications and also on urban regeneration development like Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD.
The Global Leadership Award panel of judges had selected MRCB for the best “Urban Regeneration Development” award based on the company’s Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD development that is located on 72 acres of once-forgotten part of KL City Centre that used to be a railway marshalling yard.
This development signifies a higher expression of MRCB’s sustainable approach for urban regeneration and renewal based on the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) concept, where elements of commercial and residential spaces are integrated within a location with four rail services, one of which links directly to the KLIA.
